Origin of Station Name / Typographic Design

Origin of Station Name
Origin of Station Name

The subway station names are used everyday, however in Seoul, people barely don’t know where their meaning come from because they are from Chinese letter. This work visualized the origin of the place names and combined it with Chinese and Korean letters.

Six books contain the origin of each station name from Subway Line No.1 to Line No.6, and flip books show process of how letter and image are mixed.
